2 Truckers Were Kidnapped, Tortured and Then Killed Execution-style in Florida: Police


Who killed Osmar Oliva, 50, and Johan Gonzalez Quesada, 26? The Miami-Dade Police Department say that these two men and a survivor were found tied up and shot on Saturday.

Police have announced that the victims were found dead at the yard of 1801 Rutland Street in Opa-Locka, Florida.

A Miami-Dade police spokesman told Law&Crime on Tuesday that Opa-Locka cops were the ones to find the victims in the backyard of an abandoned house. Victims were tied up, beaten, and shot. The survivor was airlifted to a trauma unit. He said it was too early to tell the motive, and that the investigation was in its “infantile stage.”

Oliva had been publicly identified as the owner of Oliva Delivery Corp, and Quesada was a fellow trucker. Family members voiced shock at their death.

Oliva’s widow told The Miami Herald he was a “very good person. I don’t know why this happened to him.”

“This is such an extraordinary shock,” said Quesada’s father Ovidio Gonzalez Roche, of the father of two. “I can’t explain what’s happened.”

Both Oliva and Quesada were previously caught up in a cargo theft allegation.

Law enforcement sources for the Herald said that the three victims were kidnapped by masked men, were bound, tortured for hours in a truck, then shot in the head and dumped in the yard at the Opa-Locka home.
